Talk Tuesday

“Talk Tuesday” is a virtual series of workshop conversations that provides a forum that amplifies the voices of marginalized and underrepresented communities around various topics centered of intersectionality and social justice.

The series plans to serve as a catalyst to:

  • promote, celebrate, and increase cultural awareness at GSU,
  • encourage cross-cultural dialogue & engagement and
  • advance global/intercultural fluency and cultural competency.

Each workshop topic is uniquely designed and expertly facilitated to create a safe environment for authentic conversation, varying viewpoints and cultural exchange. Selected guest speakers help to shift personal paradigms and facilitate learning and understanding through their scholarship, service and storytelling. The topics and speakers presented do not represent the views of the Multicultural Center or Georgia State University, but are intended to reflect contemporary social concerns.
All are welcome to take part in these cultural conversations. For more information on Talk Tuesday, please contact William Britto
